Women Can Eat a Shitload of Hot Dogs, Too

Finally, we've made it. Feminism has won. We can all march forward in solidarity with other people of all genders as we appreciate each other as fellow members of the human race rather than degrade each other as slaves to rigid social categories.

For the first time ever, women now have their own Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, and our own hot dog eating champion. World record holder Sonya Thomas's gullet blew the competition away today, and the bodies of our dearly departed feminist foremothers raised their arms in a joyful zombie salute of equality.

Thomas came in as the women's record holder, having eaten 41 hot dogs and buns in 2009, and nearly matched that number, finishing with 40 hot dogs and buns eaten in the 10-minute competition.

As a result of her eating skillz, Lady Kobayashi took home a $10,000 prize.

Goddess bless each and every one of you. This is a momentous day indeed.
